The Neuberger Museum of Art's education team produces the museum's Pre-K - 12 school programs, family programs, and a wide range of interactive, public programs to engage our broad and diverse community.
Exhibition Tours for Pre-K-12 School Groups
Learner-centered, inquiry-based exhibition tours, led by NMA educators, introduce students to the Neuberger's traditional African art collection, and a range of 20th-century and contemporary art. Tours include hands-on investigations of art materials and process, and we work closely with teachers to build and strengthen connections to classroom content and the New York State Learning Standards.
Tours for school groups are available Tuesday – Friday at 10am and 12pm. Groups are limited to no more than 50 students.
Fees: $8 per person
For an additional fee, the Education Department can coordinate boxed lunches or tickets to the Purchase College Dining Hall for your group. This program is fully subsidized for Title 1 and other qualifying schools, including lunch and transportation. For more information, and to book a tour for your class, please call the Education Department at the number above.

The Museum offers insightful and inspiring guided tours of its exhibitions, led by NMA docents, for groups of any size.
